Just because a character appears to strong doesn't mean that they actually are. If you dig a little deeper, you'll find that some characters who seem like powerhouses are actually anything but. Anime characters who are secretly weak can be sources of humor when they're revealed to be far more pitiful than their bragging implied - Nagamitsu Sakonshougen from Samurai Champloo is a great example of this. But these characters can also grow and change over time, owning up to their lack of power and deciding to do something about it, as Terufumi Sugimoto does in Yowamushi Pedal when he finally realizes that he's not a cycling expert.
These characters may not be strong, but they still deserve some appreciation. Which one is your favorite?
